Press Release (En) >>

Yumiko Chiba Associates viewing room shinjuku is pleased to present from January 12, 2017, an exhibition of two artists poison and small huts by Eiko Asano and Hisashi Yamamoto.

This exhibition is the first installment of a project series, “Modern Art: World of Calligraphy” by the eight calligraphers, which is curated by Hisashi Yamamoto and held in three places. These calligraphers are aiming at appealing their calligraphy works to the contemporary art scene at home and abroad.

Eiko Asano writes calligraphy as if painting a picture, using acrylic paint and watercolor calligraphy pen. She writes the negative letters in kanji, “doku [poison]” and “utsu [depression]” as a lovely character, keeping their forms. Such unique expression of hers are shown to us, reflecting the complex modern society which is never easy to deal with.

Hisashi Yamamoto does not only write letters, but diagrammatizes (symbolizes) their concepts based on his own standard, and expresses them on support with letters. While the representation has something to make us smile, we are moved with various questions; whether his works could be three-dimensional (spatial) or two-dimensional (plane), letters or pictures, beauty or ugliness.

At all events, these two artists have something in common; their attitude is “to shift” the conventional concept of calligraphy although being aware of the boundary of calligraphy’s identity. They paradoxically take advantage of restrictions imposed on calligraphy which basically requires writing letters, moreover, they consciously try to go beyond the restrictions, which will certainly lead the viewers to an unknown area of calligraphy art.
